Adam didn't tell the absolute truth, he 'added to' the words of God. (deception)
(he told Eve do not touch or eat the fruit but God told Adam do not eat the fruit...and God didn't say tell Eve this nor did God tell Eve this, either)
The 'Serpent' coveted the wife of his neighbor. (envy)
(who was an angel; a seraphim, more specificially, who are described as fiery serpent-like angels)
Eve allowed herself to be seduced into doing something her husband told her not to do. (faithlessness)
(even if he added to the truth, he was still her husband and she did not obey him)
So, in that one day...
The flesh sinned (and died) - Adam.
The soul sinned (and was punished thereafter) - Eve.
The spirit/son of God fell (and worked until the end to redeem Eve and remove the curse) - the Serpent.
BUT in the end it was for the good of all involved: Adam, Eve, and the Son of God!
16~ And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17~ But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
18~ And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
19~ And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
20~ And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
21~ And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22~ And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23~ And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24~ Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25~ And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
1~ Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2~ And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3~ But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
